This is a drum table that I made a couple of months ago but I’m just getting around to posting it now. The base is made out of solid Claro Walnut. I turned the pedestal and the legs are dovetailed into it. The casters on the feet are brass but i completely forgot where I purchased them. The table top is constructed out solid poplar using stacked lamination. Then i veneered the top and the sides with walnut burl veneer, the top is done in a 4 way bookmatch and i just tried to line up the sides to the best of my ability. The is also trimmed with more claro walnut. I then finished it with a few coats of General Finishes Enduro Var which were sprayed on and made for a great finish. It was my first time using this product and I would definitely use it again.

Wow, Great veneering job and book match. A great table and put a caster under the seat and it’s a piano stool.
